So I took to the internet and printed out a picture of a baby boy who I named Jared. I told her Jared was going to get her binky because he needed it. She told me that when she saw Jared she was going to tell him no, she was keeping her binky. Needless to say she never told fictitious Jared that he could in fact not have her pacifier.
We put it in an envelope and "mailed" it to baby Jared. She seemed fine at first. But then when it was nap time she asked for her bink. Clearly she did not really get the whole mailing it away thing. It was a rough nap. But she eventually fell asleep. Bedtime was rough as well. Actually it still is. She eventually goes to sleep, but at like 10:30pm. Seriously. We put her in bed at 8:00pm and fight with her for a good 2-3 hours. This is not entirely new. She freely hops out of her crib now, so she pops out of bed all the time. But with nothing to pacify her she hops out until a lot later. We are tired. It's like our evenings are the only time we have with each other and now Brynlee is staying up later than us.
But, she has been pacifier free since Monday. To think I have a potty trained child who doesn't have a pacifier is so exciting. Yay!!
Work has been better. I've actually had several people ask for my card! Granted they were all women, because I still suck at men's haircuts. But I'm getting better. Or sucking less, you might say. :)
